Hello there, new member here. Just wanted to provide some info on newish wheels - 3T Mercurio 60 LTD:

Image

Not the lightest set out there (mine weighed 610g in front/790g rear), but I chose them because the great feature is you can install any of Campagnolo/Shimano/Sram cassettes. My current setup is Campy Record 12-27 cassette and Veloflex Criterium tires.

I previously had Campy Shamal Ultras. After a couple of runs, seems that startup speed is quite fast, great stiffness, easy to climb with, and not terrible in crosswinds. Will keep on riding to get a better feel...

Thanks for looking!

after playing with the 3t wheels a bit, i find the use of their own lockring outweighs any perceived benefit of a "universal" freehub spline. no way around it, though.
